I'm not sure if this forum is an appropriate place for this question but here goes.
I work in a building that isn't close to any restaurants even though it's in a downtown-ish area. There's just one exception: we have a Jimmy John's in the building. It's the only option and everyone I know is sick of it.
This building has a ton of vacancies and I know that if another store existed people would jump on it. I talked this idea through with my fiancee the other day I ultimately decided that it wouldn't be a good idea to start the business since I already have one startup and it would be dumb to have two at once. It was, however, fun to talk about and now I'm just dying to know what the start-up costs of this sort of thing would be, out of curiosity.
Does anyone have any idea? Obviously I'm looking for a very rough guess. I'm thinking we would sell candy bars, gum, soda, and maybe have a little hot dog machine or something for starters.
